RIP Euro, 1999-2011: Poisoned chalice for Greeks amid rage & anger

The Euro is dead and burried.... quite literally according to sceptics, who've held a mock funeral for the ailing single currency in Brussels.

They argue that attempts to bailout Greece are too little, too late, and Athen's economic failure will leave the Eurozone dream in tatters. EU members are currently pressing the Greek authorities to tighten its purse strings once again, if it is to receive yet more bailout money to keep it afloat. The government will vote on a proposed 28-billion euro budget cut over five years, next week. RT has exclusively visited Euro's funeral.
